About Me
 
Thanks a lot for visiting my website! I am Ting ting Chen, a Newfoundland based photographer with a Ph.D. in folklore. I grew up in China, and when I came to Newfoundland I immediately fell in love with her beautiful scenery and her friendly people. Most of my photos of landscape and people are about Newfoundland and Newfoundlanders. My photos about wildlife and nature were taken in Newfoundland, the USA, and China. I am also a moon fanatic and have taken hundreds of moon pictures. So far my photos showcasing the beauty of Newfoundland have won multiple prestigious international photography awards.
